Goods on the Railways. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 25 October 1878
Goods on the Bsdlwaya. A few months ago a great deal was said about the additional revenue to be obtained from the railways by the Go vernment undertaking the wort now performed by the South Australian Carrying Company, mifeaii of goods p^sgJTip through their t-«'^« leaving a profit behind diem to the shareholders of the company. Dip statement was made that £20,000 more could be obtained by the Government than at present, and the Parliament required (he abolition of the hired truck system, and the inauguration of a new arrange ment. We believe that if Uhs fair promise of that time had been realised, and the Government had really undertaken aXL the work now performed by the Carry ing Company, a profit would have accrued, but now we are in a position to judge, we are satisfied that instead of good, evil has come of the move ment. The new tariff comes into operation on Monday next, and the tables of rates are now published, the Company at the same time announcing that they will do thei...
